    Sausage, combined with apricots and pecans, delights the senses when roasted with turkey.

    Prep: 30 min - Bake: 2 hrs

    12 ounces pork sausage
    2 cups dried bread cubes
    1 cup pecan halves
    1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
    1/4 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, melted
    1/3 cup chicken broth
    2 stalks (1 cup) celery, sliced 1/2-inch
    1 medium (1/2 cup) onion, chopped
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon dried sage leaves, crushed
    1/8 teaspoon pepper
    1 (5 to 7-pound) bone-in turkey breast
    3 tablespoons LAND O LAKES® Butter, melted

    Heat oven to 350°F. Brown sausage in 10-inch skillet over medium heat; drain off fat.

    Stir together browned sausage and all remaining ingredients except turkey breast and 3 tablespoons butter in large bowl. Gently loosen skin from turkey in neck area to make large area to stuff. Stuff with sausage mixture; secure skin flap with toothpicks.

    Place remaining sausage mixture in 1-quart covered casserole; refrigerate. During last 30 minutes of turkey breast baking time, bake remaining stuffing for 25 to 30 minutes or until heated through. Place stuffed turkey breast, breast-side up, on rack in roasting pan. Brush with 3 tablespoons melted butter.

    Bake, basting occasionally, for 2 to 2 1/2 hours or until meat thermometer reaches 170°F to 175°F and turkey breast is no longer pink. Let stand 10 minutes.
